More 88 Madcows

I made some updates to my 88_madcows.theme file for irssi. The biggest change is the theme working with 0.8.13 and greater. Further, I added the server tag to the statusbar when in the status window, so when I need to change servers for whatever reason, it's obvious what server I'm on before cycling through. Screenshot here, and the theme file here.

    @nixternal "$_" used for toggling on and off bold wasn't terminating correctly. As a result, characters that should no longer be bold, still were. A quick "s/$_//g" fixed it, even if it is side-stepping the issue. Not sure if it's irssi's fault, or my terminal, or a combination of the two, but looking through my theme file, I don't see the need for "$_". Everything is looking solid. Like your theme, as well.
